WNS fungus reaches Indiana.  Today the Indiana Department of Natural Resources announced that a bat from Washington County, Indiana has tested positive for the fungus Geomyces destructans and additional bats with signs of WNS were discovered during routine bat counts at other caves.  Indiana is now the 15th state to document WNS-associated fungus and represents significant spread by the fungus into the upper Midwest.
